Ah, how is Grigg without us there? We were invited to a Feast by our neighbors. But don't worry, we'll bring come back and clean house again soon. - Vigeous RHA 23:35, 2 August 2008 (BST)

I doubt there is one living person in Griggs at the moment, so you'd be wasting your time. I'd go to the east -- there are fat burbs filled with bored survivors too lazy to come to such feral places like Grigg Heights, they'd rather sit in their safe houses doing nothing. --Elingold 17:14, 3 August 2008 (BST)

An answer, maybe... your formatting question. I asked at the #udwiki IRC after we talked last nite, and was referred to User:Boxy. Here's the response I got: "The only way I've seen it done is to first edit the page where you're going to upload the image (eg Image:Whatever.jpg), and make it a redirect to the page you want to link to, and then upload the image to that location. Then whenever anyone clicks on that image on any page it redirects to the page you nominated -- boxy talk • i 05:57 14 December 2007 (BST)"

Hope that helps. --Doc 12:00, Dec 14, 2007 EST


It seems you're a half-step ahead of me, lol. I keep checking out these groups and you've already signed up at their forums, etc. Saved me the trouble, so maybe you could look into getting us added to some of their pages, and vice versa? INO, etc. If they're really interested it'd be great to have something more formal written down. --Doc Smithsfieldsoner 15:20, 4 Dec 2007 EST

  • Well this last run was a pretty good one. We held off quite a number of zeds for about twice as long as I thought we'd last. What do you think of changing the cade policy for the time being? (assuming we can retake it, again, that is) VSB just won't cut it against a horde of more than 20, not w/only half a dozen or so survivors holding out. --Doc Smithsfieldsoner 19:27, Dec 6, 2007 GMT

Hey ElinGold. Good news is that I've recently retaken Loveridge Arms and have barricaded it back up to very heavily at the moment. I want to try staging a retaking of at least Edmund and hopefully Haddock PD as well. I'm going to need all the help I can get to hold'em though. Is your group still in the neighborhood to stay put in the hospital once that happens? Anyone with the construction skil, more specifically?

Thats great!

I think everyone is getting tooled up for a come back. I'm dead at the moment waiting for a revive at [7-43]. I have a toolbox n stuff but i'm not much use at the moment :( --Elingold 20:22, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Thank you for the revive!

Shoooweee, Grigg Heights is a tough place to call home. --Les Nessman BBC 18:33, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

So sorry!

You can probably be sure that I didn't mean to hide the Edmund General ppl from the Griggs info page. This copy+paste thing sometimes confuses us! All apologies for that! --Mark McCormick 19:22, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

I figured .. its not a huge deal.. just wanted you to be aware that the pipe at the end does that.. Took me a few mins to figure out cos the groups were still there.. just invisible!!

;( But we like you

Looks like we've been site seeing the same spots. We all look forward to doing more glorious battle with you. --War Criminal 05:35, 1 July 2008 (BST)

Oh I'm just still miffed you all chose Edmund General to sack first is all. We just had that place back together after six or so months of fighting and running.

I'll get over it :) --Elingold 06:58, 1 July 2008 (BST)

It's all good. Your right about the Totes though. I was one of them back when they were just starting out & only recently left them for RftM. The Totes are an exceptional team of players & with Doc Smith on their can they go wrong. :) --War Criminal 23:30, 2 July 2008 (BST)

Sherring Plaze

Hey Elingold

I am thinking about consolidating the RPs in Griggs Heights. I see that you are maintaining Sherring as your main RP. But we have Forshaw not far away from it. Would it be possible to close Sherring and take Forshaw as the only RP in north Griggs? It is in a better position near Challes and more central. This would reduce the amount of AP needed to check both RPs and dead survivors would have no drawbacks because of it. Of course we would tag no advertisement at Forshaw Drive and could still include the name of your group in the WIKI list for the RP.

Greetings, DrBoebboff, Malton Forensics Unit, DEM --DrBoebboff 18:58, 17 October 2008 (BST)

Hello DrBoebboff

That sounds like a good idea. We're under such zombie pressure in Griggs that we can barely stay alive ourselves much less service the revive point with any kind of frequency these days. Back when the burb was in better shape it was a convenient spot, but anybody seeking a revive at Sherring would have to wait for quite a while. So feel free to redirect those seeking help to another location.

Thanks for all the help and lets bring Grigg Heights back!

--Elingold 19:41, 17 October 2008 (BST)

Heya, E :) If you get a chance check the forum, Ryan and I have hooked up. Not sure about the others but I can definitely find el cad, and where would we be without a Chief of Security, right? Anyway, take care, talk to you soon I hope. o/ Doc Smithsfieldsoner 12:56, Nov. 13, '08

Hey Elingold, I'm not sure how much of Edmund General United is still active, but we can certainly add you to our list of allies with a Non-Aggression Pact if you're interested. Also, if you are planning on trying to retake the hospital within the next couple days, jump to our private forum at and let me know. The OBR will help you get your home back. ;) --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 08:03, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Looking to join up

Dear Elingold, Sorry, don't know if I'm doing this right. I tried to put in an application at the EGU forum, but could't post. I'd like to try out for a medic's position with your group. I've first aid, diagnostic, free running and construction skills and I even scrounged up my own toolbox. My user page is thanks, sasha belle

Recruitment ad

I just noticed your ad over at Recruitment.It looks pretty good, but, of course, I wouldn't be here if all was well. If you check the guidelines at the top, it says that ads are not to exceed 800px in height and should not cause horizontal scrollbars at 800x600 resolution. Unfortunately, your ad comes in at 905px in height, and since it has a fixed width of 845px, it does cause (some rather significant) horizontal scrollbars to occur. I'm going to have to ask that you cut down on the ad a bit. Instead of having a fixed width of 845px with your ad, perhaps you could set it as a percent of the page width (e.g. "width:80%")? As for the height, you'll have to cut back on the text quite a bit, it would seem, since that's just too much text to fit into that space. Aichon 21:58, 6 April 2010 (BST)

Sorry i'm an idiot. Still on a modem I never did get the full recruitment page to load with all those images etc :(

I'll fix it asap

--Elingold 22:18, 6 April 2010 (BST)

I changed it to 80% and made it shorter. HOpe that is okay.

Looks great, and you're not an idiot by any means. There are so many rules and guidelines on that page that I have to contact someone for almost every single new ad that gets posted. Thanks for fixing it up so quickly. Aichon 23:38, 6 April 2010 (BST)

Edu image

Hello! Just wondering if the image you've used for the hospital was taken in the UK? Think I recognise it, but can't tell. Cheers! --Karloth Vois ¯\(°_o)/¯ 23:11, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
